New evidence released in US murder case

Documents made public by prosecutors could support claims on both sides in black teenager Trayvon Martin's killing.

    Prosecutors in the US state of Florida have released almost 200 pages of evidence in the case of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager killed by a neighbourhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, last February.

    The documents and images provide some support for both the shooter - who's claimed self-defence - and the boy's family which says the killing was racially motivated and avoidable.
